Resources on climate change

We have produced a couple of new booklets to give a basic introduction to climate change,  what it’s about, why it’s happening, and what we can do to help reduce our impacts on the environment and climate. The actions suggest ways we can work together at household, farm and community levels to reduce our damaging impacts on the drawing2environment, and also help vulnerable people adapt to climate change impacts.

Here’s the link to the booklet explaining what climate change is and why it’s happening:  climate-change-what-is-it.

And here’s the link to the actions we can take at household, farm and community levels to reduce our impacts on the environment and climate: climate-change-actions
